Appendix A Statement of Task A planning committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineer- ing, and Medicine will plan and host a 1.5-day public workshop that will examine the array of short- and long-term toxicities and adverse effects that patients may experience as a result of cancer treatment and consider options to improve quality of life for cancer survivors and their families by addressing these adverse consequences. The workshop will feature invited presentations and panel discussions on topics that may include • An overview of the physical and mental health risks and socioeconomic consequences of cancer diagnosis and treatment, including unique considerations for different patient populations (e.g., children or older adults). • Strategies to better accrue data on short- and long-term effects of cancer and cancer treatment, as captured by patient-reported outcome ­measures, clinician input, or other methods. • Opportunities to redesign cancer treatment approaches to reduce short- and long-term toxicities without compromising treatment effectiveness, as well as strategies to mitigate toxicities that may occur. • Patient engagement in treatment decision making and tools to aid their assessment of the various risk/benefit trade-offs. • System-level interventions, best practices and low tech/low cost approaches to prevention, surveillance, and mitigation of cancer ­treatment–related toxicities and adverse effects. 59 PREPUBLICATION COPY—Uncorrected Proofs

60 ADVERSE CONSEQUENCES OF CANCER TREATMENT • Opportunities to overcome the challenges that prevent uptake and dis- semination of evidence-based approaches to address treatment-related toxicities and adverse effects. The planning committee will develop the agenda for the workshop ses- sions, select and invite speakers and discussants, and moderate the discussions. A proceedings of the presentations and discussions at the workshop will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional guidelines. PREPUBLICATION COPY—Uncorrected Proofs

Cancer treatment can lead to an array of significant short- and long-term physical, psychosocial, and socioeconomic consequences for patients and their families. To examine the opportunities to prevent and mitigate the adverse effects of cancer treatment, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine hosted a virtual workshop, Addressing the Adverse Consequences of Cancer Treatment, in November 2020. This workshop was convened by the Academies' National Cancer Policy Forum in collaboration with the Forum on Aging, Disability, and Independence. Workshop presentations and discussions described the range of adverse effects that patients with cancer may experience across the life course, and highlighted potential strategies to improve quality of life for cancer survivors and their families.
